The disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned on Tuesday after an investigation by the state’s attorney general concluded that he had sexually harassed at least eleven women.
Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Joe Biden of sexually harassing her in the 1990s, responded to this news by calling for a “real investigation” into the president.
“My heart is with the brave Cuomo survivors who endured attempts to discredit them like I did coming forward about Joe Biden with the help of non-profits that were supposed to help women like Time’s Up,” Reade told Fox News. “May there be some measure of justice for the survivors. Now, let’s call for a real investigation into Joe Biden and expose the corruption protecting powerful predators.””
Reade went on to slam Time’s Up, the organization that claims to want to help women who were subjected to sexual harassment and assault. However, it has been claimed that the group’s co-chair Roberta Kaplan helped Cuomo discredit one of his accusers.
“Time’s Up committed the most hideous betrayal to protect their most powerful friends and not only not protect survivors but cause harm,” Reade continued.
“The revelations and Cuomo’s resignation is a signal to the powerful men with nasty behavior that survivors’ voices will be heard and their behavior no longer rewarded. Not from a governor and not from the president of the United States,” she concluded. “I hope for justice. Cuomo resigned today and Biden should also resign.”
Reade is one of eight women who accused Biden of inappropriate touching in 2019. When White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that Biden is an “advocate for fighting against violence against women,” Reade was quick to fire back.
“Psaki speaks for the man who is now POTUS who sexually assaulted me and I am sure she has heard me,” Reade told Fox News. “She is complicit with rape culture by displaying her hypocrisy and the administration’s hypocrisy regarding standing up for women when they are the perpetrators. That’s something [he] has done throughout his career and will continue to do.”
